It's not great news

Well, Jessie's blood test results are in, but it's not great news. After the great drop in her levels after 2 weeks of daily camel treatments, we had high hopes we'd reach the magic number after another 2 weeks and be able to reduce her camel treatments. (Jessie's a trooper, but she doesn't like them.) Unfortunately, her numbers have actually gone up again. The specialist isn't very sure what to do. He suggested twice daily camel treatments, which Momma is against, and a supplement called Azodyl that he isn't sure works but can't hurt. <sigh> Momma is checking with her LBR friends to see if anyone has suggestions. One said Azodyl didn't help her pup at all, but something called Renal Essentials did.

If anyone has any experience with any renal supplements or other possibilities, Momma would appreciate the advice!


  1. Bummer, we were just about to read your earlier post when this popped up. We are so sorry the numbers are up. We don't have any experience with renal issues, but we hope somebody out there has some encouraging thoughts. Meanwhile we will continue to cross our paws and send good vibes for Jessie.

  2. We sure hope for some relief to her kidney troubles. Somewhere and somehow . . .

  3. Darn it! We were hoping it would be better news...

  4. Oh gurl, I had my paws crossed real tight that we would be celebrating your numbers. I'm hoping maybe one of these supplements can help. I wish I had more experience on this, butts we are just starting with the high protein in the urine, and all this is kidney stuff is new to us too. If I hear anything, I will bark at you. Paws crossed real tight that your vettie and Moms will find the right stuff. {{{hugs}}}

  7. Thats terrible! My angel sisfur Mollie was in kidney failure before she passed. Momma says she is praying for you and your pawrents.

    Puppy Growls,

  8. Jessie we are so sorry to hear your levels are up. We have no experience I guess you are on special kidney food already. Purrs and hugs madi and mom

    1. Kidney food, two types of meds, and the daily camel treatment. We're looking for anything we can add to that that might help.

  9. I'm afraid that I don't have any experience with this but I am sending you POTP. We want you to feel better.

  10. Oh no! We were hoping for better news.We don't have any experience with this type of ailment. We hope Jesse stays stable and that the newly suggested drug helps in some way. Love and hugs to you Jessie and to your Mama too. We know all of this is tough on her :( Keep us posted!
